Recipe Restaurant - Beef Skewer

Recipe Restaurant offers patrons Persian cuisine, particularly skewered meats, but they also have pasta and risotto dishes, plus seafood and burgers for the Western palette. Overlooking Langley Park and the beautiful Swan River, one can enjoy a plate packed with food for the highish price tag. We ordered chicken, beef and lamb skewered meats to share amongst ourselves but while they were tender, they were quid bland, lacking spice, or flavour from whatever the meats were skewered over (e.g. grill or coals). Maybe the skewered meats are cooked just like in Persia, but I was expecting far more flavour. The loose grained rice is nice, the barbecued chilli packs some heat, the grilled tomatoes help cool your mouth as too the Shirazi salad. The entree of roasted eggplant was nice with delicious Turkish bread and the Persian style profiteroles with sweetened cream were good but I prefer the French variety. For my palette, I want far more flavour and Recipe didn’t deliver on that front. . . . → Read More: Recipe Restaurant – 22 Apr 2015

The Trustee & Dessert Degustation - 15 Apr 2015

The Trustee - Dessert Degustation - Snickers Bar

I headed especially to The Trustee to try their dessert degustation. Before I started, I ordered the pork belly parcels which served up tender pork belly oozing the unmistakeable flavour that only pork belly can offer, surrounded by crunchy pastry and a blob of cranberry sauce. This was well paired with a delicious apple and red cabbage salad. Then it was on to the dessert degustation consisting of 5 courses. I loved the wattleseed and caramel ice cream, not so much the quince with pear tart. The lychee granita was so refreshing and enjoyed thoroughly with the rosewater panna cotta. The snickers bar was absolutely amazing along with the vanilla ice cream wafer. Lastly, the spearmint macaron and spearmint vanilla flavoured milkshake was an excellent finish to the meal. I love the dessert degustation which offers lots of variety, quality, execution, and taste. Five courses for $24 is well worth it, mind you, after the fourth course I was done. Plenty to keep you happy. . . . → Read More: The Trustee & Dessert Degustation – 15 Apr 2015

Restaurant Amusé - 14 Apr 2015

Restaurant Amuse - Marron, Carrot, Buckwheat

A degustation at Restaurant Amuse will place you in an environment perfect for any special occasion accompanied by professional service, quality food, perfect execution, and delicious taste. I felt the balance of some dishes were out of whack, an example being the beef dish which was far too creamy, and this coming from a person who likes creamy and rich food. The very creamy element seemed to be a common thread through several dishes which needs to be tempered and differentiated. Aside from that I liked the Spanish stuffed pepper with goats cheese, the nashi pear with grated turnip and cheddar cheese was an excellent pairing, the marron dish was excellent but the star of the night was the duck. What a fantastic dish paired with creamy cauliflower purée and bitter kohlrabi. Excellent experience. So full! . . . → Read More: Restaurant Amusé – 14 Apr 2015

OSH5ONE - Bali Modern Cuisine - 11 Apr 2015

Bali Modern Cuisine is a family run restaurant opposite Bentley Plaza and has a simple interior. For those who have been to Bali, they also have Balinese items on display for sale. Obtaining a takeaway order can hurt the original preparation of the food like some of the fried items I purchased so I can’t hold that against them. I was rather amused to receive quite a nice carry bag containing the takeaway items. The flavour of the food is delicious. I really liked the fried chicken coated in sambal, the fried duck with Bali modern sauce, and the beef rendang. The gado gado was pretty tasty and so too the potato fritter which is pretty small. The ice cendol was refreshing but contained ice cubs rather than shaved ice which took away from the drink. Excellent Indonesian flavours and a large variety of cheaply priced dishes to choose from. . . . → Read More: OSH5ONE – Bali Modern Cuisine – 11 Apr 2015

Bar de Halcyon - 10 Apr 2015

Bar de Halcyon - Paella

Wolf Lane plays hosts to several restaurants and bars with Bar de Halcyon being one of them. They offer tapas but also have more substantial dishes too. I ordered the paella which contained a generous quantity for the price and consisted of juicy prawns, chicken, and chorizo. The rice was quite flavoursome though some parts needed a little more cooking. It carries a pretty good flavour though doesn’t seem as authentic as varieties I’ve eaten before. It’s still a tasty meal, especially with a squeeze of lemon. The tapas item of Spanish crumbed prawns was delicious. A lovely golden brown crumb surrounded tender prawns enjoyed more with a dash of lime and a dip into the cocktail sauce. The cucumber salad which appeared like noodles was a refreshing element to the prawns and paella. . . . → Read More: Bar de Halcyon – 10 Apr 2015

Bintang Cafe Indonesian Cuisine - 4 Apr 2015

Bintang Cafe must be pretty popular as they were a fair amount of Indonesians at the restaurant. I had visited once before several years ago but this time I ordered several dishes and was really impressed with the delicious flavours. The beef curry, while very runny, was extremely flavoursome and contained lots of tender beef. The gado gado is unbelievable, a fantastic slightly runny satay sauce transforming boring steamed vegetables into something else. Definitely comfort food. Lastly, the ayam baker pedas, contained a big chunk of grilled chicken covered in sambal which had some kick, but carried plenty of flavour making the chicken something to savour. There’s a range of dishes on the menu, the venue itself is simple but the food is delicious and excellent value. About $25 for all that. . . . → Read More: Bintang Cafe Indonesian Cuisine – 4 Apr 2015
